If business has suddenly discovered poetic imagination, is it time for science to discover poetic imagination?

Jacob Bronowski? Loren Eiseley? C.P. Snow? Carl Sagan? David Brin? Robert Forward? Isaac Asimov? Richard Feynman? I think there was never a time when scientists have not held poetic imagination. The problem is getting people to listen to those imaginations. We are predisposed to thinking that those who attempt to understand the universe have a lesser appreciation for it.

But imagination is not the only thing in science. We need not only an imagination, but a filter. The filter is just as important as the imagination.

I'm reminded of a quote of Sagan's that I can't place exactly, "We accepted the products of science, but rejected it's methods."
